film stillVOICES FROM GAZA is the first full length documentary produced after the start of the Palestinian intifada. With minimal commentary, it allows the people of Gaza - 70% of whom are refugees - to tell their seldom heard story.

In VOICES FROM GAZA, Palestinian men, women, and children speak frankly about the effect of Israel's occupation on their lives: curfews have been imposed, arrests are routine, and Israeli army patrols are ever present. But they also reveal the work of local "popular committees," through which they provide each other with alternative education, health care, and welfare services, even under these most daunting conditions.

Highlighting the means by which ordinary Palestinians are fighting Israel's occupation, VOICES FROM GAZA makes clear a vital element of the wider Middle East conflict.

"The camera roams beneath a bright Mediterranean sun, revealing 40 years of poverty, deprivation, and oppression... This is a riveting view of one side of the Middle Eastern conflict."—Booklist
